is getting higher and higher. earlier when i was on tv, i was a good hundred feet back from where i am now, i'm on the main stretch. if you look behind me about three-quarters of a mile, there are some red lights. those red lights are the only working traffic lights now in town because all electricity is out. that's on auxiliary power. just beyond that is the ocean. i can't even get 100 feet back now, the water will be up to my thighs at that point so the water is rising very quickly here and of course, that water rising inland with respect to all the rain that's falling is going to be the major concern from points northeast -- north of here and northwest and of course, west. philadelphia is exactly 60 miles west of where we are, and they are bracing for a lot of water in the next few hours. >> be careful. we will continue to check in with all our correspondents throughout the region. governor christie of new jersey blasting the mayor of atlantic city for encouraging people to shelter in place. we will try to talk to the mayor a little later on throughout this hour. let's get a sense of where

-led rally that just keeps on giving all year. stocks, gold, home prices, all moving higher. but is a new bubble forming? some say yes and you will not believe in what. >>> so what are you doing with your money ahead of the election? you buying? you selling? are you hiding under the mattress? we want to hear from you. tweet us your strategy. >>> and facebook talking up its cell phone strategy. hear more in our exclusive interview with cheryl sandberg. >>> coming up, the stocks have come off their highs of the session but the dow may still be on the verge of breaking a recent trend. it could finish higher for only the second time in 17 mondays. the s&p 500 also on track to break a recent trend. it is higher today after being down for 8 of the past 10 sessions. >>> as for the nasdaq, it has dipped into negative territory several times today. it is back in the black and trying to avoid its fifth drop in six sessions. let's get straight down to bob and rick. it is a new quarter, a new week. i believe since 1980 the fourth quarter has generally been the best quarter of the year for the s&p. co

districts say manufacturing improved with energy being robust. loan demand said to be higher in most districts. credit standards unchanged. but several districts reported improving loan quality with falling delinquencies. that's something we want to be watching. small business loans are something else we need to be watching remain hard to get in some districts. not a great beige book overall but interesting pockets of strength and some compelling pockets of weakness. >> we started to also see the markets come off their lows. interesting what you were saying about the lack of skilled workers. we've had so many business leaders and ceos here on street signs and many other cnbc shows complaining about the lack of skilled workers. and finally -- how long did it take before these districts are starting these job training programs? >> i'll tell you what's interesting. it maybe suggests that something on the ground has changed a little bit. you wouldn't train workers if you weren't certain about the demand for those workers. we're a little bit or a touch more confident in the futures. maybe

been fda approved and one of the problems is that it also seems to have a higher false positive rate. >> and when might we see it in san francisco? >> it's hard to say. and i think one of the years where 3d is useful is for younger women who have dense breasts and so the studies that have looked at that are suggesting that 3d mammograms, which, again, look at the breast from different dimensions and have a machine that goes over the women's breast and to give a better picture of the breast is useful, particularly in women who are younger with dense breasts. >> huh. >> and and i think there needs to be more research looking at this before it's adopted widespread and as a basic screening tool. >> okay. we're going to take a break and come back and have more including the standard of treatment right now and what you should be doing. can you prevent breast cancer and what you should be doing at what age. when we return. . >> welcome back. we're talking with mindy goldson and in addition to her practice, she has the fund which provides women with breast cancer. she would like us to say no

fueled the mood. goldman sachs profit rose much higher than expected thanks t the strong investment banking. shares of banks could profit from these results, driven also by speculation that spain may get help very soon. >> let's get a closer look at those gains on the global market. we stick in frankfurt where germany's benchmark tax is higher on the day. it was nearly 2% higher. as for the euro stoxx 50, nearly 3% higher. the dow jones is nearly 0.75% higher. >> several non-governmental organizations in berlin have called for more financial transparency for german politicians. they want to make it a prerequisite for parliamentarians to show whether cash comes from. >> the german parliament has rules for this, but exact details are not clear. the debate was spurred by the designated candidate for chancellor of the sbd party. many people feel the public should have information on his precise earnings. >> steinbrueck's talents have not just how to - political career. he has also made good money on the lecture circuit. after fierce scrutiny, he agreed to make his finances public. trans

is partly to blame for holding down the market yesterday. the dow perhaps could have been higher in light of a strong 15% jump in construction and spanish bonds avoiding junk status. reports say the ipad mini will be released november 2nd. and drought, frost and hail are causing one of the worst years for europe's wine grape harvest in half a century. larry shover of sfg alternatives joins us this morning for a look at the market. larry, what is driving this market? > > right now it seems like it's not earnings, because we saw yesterday, ibm's earnings, they didn't do very well - down 5.5% in the stock, but yet the stock market still rallied. i think it's a broader focus. the european tail risk has gone away. u.s. and china numbers aren't great, but they're stabilizing. so i think people are getting their heads around the fact that things have perhaps bottomed out in the market. > > as you mentioned, ibm was a heavy weight on this market yesterday. could that continue on into today? > > it definitely could, and we'll see earnings coming out later. but right now i think the expectations ar

questions the board may have. >> mr. sanchez, if the rear of this property was higher than the street curb, he would be able to go 35 feet from a midpoint, right, across the lot? that would establish an envelope that is parallel to the slope if it's higher in the rear. >> i think there are a couple important points. if the rear property line is 20 feet or more higher than the front, then the 35 foot height limit doesn't aplay and you are back to the 40 foot height limit. also in the planning code, the definition of height and how to measure height on up sliping lots it actually follows grade. so if this wasn't a flat lot, if it was an upsloping lot, yes, they could arguably have more flexibility in having a taller building. it would be easier it accomplish a 4 story building. the base and the level may be slightly below grade at the rear but if it's an upsloping lot either 20 feet or more, it follows grade so it would be a little bit easier to build a taller building. >> mr. sanchez, your discussion both in your papers and today suggests that this 35 foot limit is an absolute limit. t

into the futures they are ten points higher than where the spot is right now. so if what dennis says and his observations as well as michelle and michelle if we see a regime change you will see that vix, those futures come down dramatically because that steepness of that curve is there because of the potential that it goes the opposite way, the potential that we have some sort of nuclear issue or israel drags the united states -- >> this is not a regime that walks away easily. this is not like flipping the keys to an apartment that you are done renting. these businesses in power. ahmadinejad is a puppet for much bigger powers behind the scene. my concern would be this is not going to be an orderly transition because land and rice prices are higher. i take the other side of that. my go-to trade would be like a conoco phillips. here is an oil producer that has more than 70% of its assets in the north america region. if there is a gas spice this is not a company that is reliant on the strait and they have their assets in a much safer place and i think they get a premium as a result of that. >>

. we have the sandisk ceo today and that stock is really considerably higher. let me get to the chicago mercantile exchange, gary, to see a lot of commodities today because the dollar strengthened against the euro and the yen, but to see gold drop as much as it's dropping is kind of interesting, is it not? >> yeah, it certainly is, and what's probably causing a lot of that is we're looking over to europe. we're trying to see is spain going to take the bait? are they going to take some of the money? also again, we still have greece in the background, hands up, and nobody is really talking about italy right now. again, there's just that uncertainty. the dollar. the euro is holding above that 130 range. so we're seeing the metals pulling down for right now and silver is doing the same. silver is down 80 cents rite now. -- right now. everybody is sitting on the side lines they are waiting to see is spain going to take it. also what's going to happen here in the u.s. in the next few weeks. there's that flight to safety, but nobody is flying there yet. liz: yeah, it's true. i will tell you th
